        I gained access to the course through an organisation called ‘Positive People’ and thought it would be a good course for me to complete as I’d always preferred outside, hands-on work instead of working in an office environment, which I’d previously done for more than 20 years in the Transport industry.

          Our Facilities


          If not working on site with an employer, learners will benefit from the incredible modern facilities, as most teaching will take place at our Winter Gardens campus in the heart of Weston-super-Mare.

          Situated a stone throw from the beach, this vibrant environment is home to our main Library facilities as well as the HEART team where you’ll have access to the incredible support services they offer our learners. Just next door you’ll also find our industry standard fully fitted laboratories which will allow you to carry out a range of practical sessions.

          For our Animal learners, we’re proud to be partnered with Puxton Park, now home to our Animal Management Education Centre. Classroom lectures come to life as you carry out practical sessions at the park, enabling you to develop industry specific skills working with the park’s specialist facilities and animals.

          Puxton’s range of domestic, farm and exotic animals include tortoises, parrots, reindeer, owls, marmoset monkeys, meerkats, donkeys, goats, ponies, rare pigs, alpacas, cattle, emus and stick insects.

          “The tutors were amazing and this course helped me find my direction and work out what I really wanted to do. The Foundation Degree covered a wide variety of subjects, but you also get the chance to focus on what really interests you.”

          Rebekah is now continuing her training to become a veterinary nurse.
